With the year almost over, it seems as though the days of Missouri being known as the methamphetamine capital are behind us. Last year, the highway patrol reported responding to 507 meth-related incidents while through October of this year they only report 180. They report two in Camden and Miller Counties and none in Morgan. In 2014, there were 9 in Camden County, two in Miller, and 3 in Morgan. Camden County Sheriff Dwight Franklin says he believes people are just replacing it with other drugs.
The number of incidents are not available yet for November and December.
